On the morning of January 12, 2021, Rex Stockton Judkins passed away encompassed in love in his home with his devoted wife, Karen Lee Judkins, by his side.\nRex was born in Pocatello, Idaho on September 14, 1946 to Leo and Helen Judkins. He had three siblings, Claire Judkins, Vicky Miller (Mike) and Ed Judkins (Sharron).\nRex joined hands with the love of his life, Karen Lee, on November 5th, 1965. They were a perfect example of unconditional love for over 55 years. Rex graduated from Weber High in 1964 and he later served in the National Guard. He worked at Thiokol for several years and retired from Hill Air Force Base. During his younger years, when Rex wasn’t working hard to\nprovide for his family he enjoyed hunting, riding his Gold Wing Motorcycle, fishing and camping.\nHe looked forward to time spent with his kids at Little Lyman Lake.\nRex and Lee raised four beautiful children together, Corey (Janis), Cody, Cortney (Warren) and Coundy (Jeremy).\nIn 1992, he took on his most cherished role as “Papa” after his first grandchild was born. Over the years he was given seven exceptionally unique grandchildren: Braxten (Sydney), Shaila (Tory), Jaxon (Katy), Shaden (Vicky), Eric, Lauren (Dillen), Wyley, and Lilli. To his overwhelming excitement, his calling as “Pabuck” didn’t end there- he was blessed with four great grandbabies, Lane, Braylin, Forrest and Madelyn and several grand puppies. With two soon-to-be-born great-granddaughters still up in heaven, we know that Papa was the first to embrace them.\nSplurging on a fried chicken picnic on sunny days at the trout farm was one of his favorite family activities. From super soaker water fights to RV cars, Papa always supplied the fun. The grandkids knew that if the parents said no, all they had to say was “Papa get it” and he always did.\nHis acceptance, patience, and occasional inappropriate sense of humor made him the heart of our family. His love knew no bounds and he constantly expressed that to each one of us. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, brother Claire and loyal companion Ginger.\nOur family would like to extend a special thank you to Rex’s honorary daughter, Heidi Lamarrand extended family Bart and Julie Thomspon.
